We know as teachers that students are successful when they can synthesize what they have learned and what they are having problems with based on a certain criteria. Giving students the opportunity to record what “I now know” and what “I need to learn” in relation to a lesson goal will promote them to become reflective thinkers and learners. I find that using learning logs at the end of a lesson is a fantastic way for students to critically analyze their own personal learning. I create little booklets for my students for each strand of mathematics.
